Plant and mechanical engineering is a global industry involving complex applications. This demands flexibility, quality, reliability and customer focus. Given the wide range of possible applications, there is a need for various pressure ranges, appropriate accuracies, suitable electrical and mechanical connections and output signals agreed in consultation with the customer.

The potato started in the Andes and it is one of the crops of greater importance Worldwide. The potato came to Europe in the XVI century by two different ways: one was in Spain around 1570 and the other was by the British Islands among 1588 and 1593, from where it was expanded to the rest of Europe. The annual production is of 300 million tons of the fresh tuber expanded in 19.5 millions of hectares planted. Asia and Europe are the regions with bigger production worldwide, with more than the 80% of the production. Today China is the bigger producer. The Asiatic consume reach nearly half of the world consume, however it excessive population indicates that the annual production by person is just of 25 kg. in 2005. European is the bigger consumer of potato.

Greater crop quality and yield
Forms a physical barrier between the plant and the environment, protecting it from plagues, insects, infections and dust.
Allows the seepage of the water, air and light needed for the growth of the plant.
Generates a micro-climate that promotes better yields and quality of the crops.
Minimizes or even eliminates the use of agro-chemicals in the crops. Ideal for organic or bio-rational producers.
Adds value to the crops in export markets.
Main crops: Melon, Pumpkin, Watermelon, Pepper, Tomato, Cucumber, Hot Peppers, Flowers, among others.

TeraFlo® significantly reduces watering requirements per cycle of irrigation while maintaining adequate moisture for good plant health and growth. Due to its filtration properties, excessive moisture also flows through the soil thereby preventing environments for fungal growth. It draws moisture from the air and the surface and attaches itself to the plant roots from sources not previously available. It provides proper wetting and drainage in non-soil media as well as eliminating unusable water. TeraFlo® dramatically improves the ability of rainfall and water to easily penetrate the soil surface and gain access to the root zone. By encapsulating the soil particles, it significantly decreases friction allowing for easy and rapid water penetration and filtration into any soil condition; hardpan, compacted or otherwise. It improves the efficiency of all applied additives (pesticides, insecticides nutrients, etc) preventing rapid leaching of these products. This increases their effectiveness and reduces over all application quantities making additive usage far more cost effective. Holding organophosphates in the soil reduces the leaching of these toxins which significantly improves their performance. The product has a special affinity to nitrogen thereby reducing nitrate leaching protecting against groundwater contamination. TeraFlo® prevents the buildup of soluble sodium salts contained in fertilizers and water sources thereby reducing stress conditions. Continual use will keep the root zone free of sodium salts. TeraFlo® increases microbial activity which aids in root cell buildup resulting in faster uptake of nutrients. TeraFlo® reduces soil erosion from in-furrow irrigation and significantly reduces nitrogen loss in head ditch irrigation systems. TeraFlo® improves drip applied fumigant systems allowing for a more efficient and longer release system. Teraflo provides lubrication to pump parts, valves, and other parts of pressurized water systems preventing products in the irrigation piping from sticking to the walls, thus reducing drip and irrigation head clogging. This reduces downtime, repair costs, and maintenance.

Surface preparation: Your pond surface needs to be clean, dry and structurally sound. We suggest not using any detergents in your Pond. A medium bristle brush and water is all that is needed. You want the surface to be clean of any dirt that will be picked up with the nap of the roller or in the paintbrush used during the application process. Avoid cleaners and detergents since any remaining residue may harm your fish or plants. Only if your pond does not have plants or fish should you consider using cleaning solutions. On an epdm liner that has not been coated with other coatings it is simply a one coat application of PondPro2000.
